NEW FOR 2013: "THE LOCOMOTIVE EXPERIENCE"
Have you ever dreamed of operating a locomotive? Wondered how a diesel-electric locomotive operates? Do you think you have what it takes to be a locomotive engineer? If so, BSRM will be offering "The Locomotive Experience" on select Saturdays during the 2013 Season. This day long session will feature classroom instruction and hands-on training that will give participants their chance to experience how locomotive engineers are trained and what skills they must possess to operate a 120- ton locomotive. The course will culminate with participants operating our 1953 EMD SW-8 #8619 in our rail yard. Further information, availability and pricing will be announced soon!
